The Peace Corps is coming back to Colombia! After almost three decades of absence, it's just another sign of the nation's new stabilityand security and the increased international faith in Colombia.
Of course, security concerns weren't the only troubles the Peace Corps had here. There were also crazy rumors about them supposedly being part of a conspiracy to drive Colombians to extinction by promoting birth control. Hopefully, this time the volunteers will be met with good faith. In any case, I'm told that initially they'll only be teaching English, which is a less-sensitive activity.
Evidently, many one-time volunteers haven't forgotten Colombia.
